When New York Times bestselling author Tom Angleberger visits Mission Viejo on Friday, September 19 to discuss the final book in his “Origami Yoda” series, he will sketch some of the characters that made him famous and demonstrate his famous origami creations.
Angleberger will appear in the City’s free Writers Present program at 6 p.m. in the Mission Viejo Council Chamber at City Hall, 200 Civic Center. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Mission Viejo Library and A Whale of a Tale Bookshoppe.
In the final Origami Yoda case file from the kids at McQuarrie Middle School, “Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus” follows Tommy and the gang as they prepare for a well-earned day of fun and adventure in Washington, DC. Their trip to the nation’s capital is full of shifting alliances and betrayals, carsickness and sugar rushes. The book is said to be the “sweetest, stookiest, biggest, craziest Origami Yoda case file yet.”
Angleberger, whose books have been sold to 3.3-million people worldwide, will be on hand at the end to sign books purchased on site and kids will have opportunities to get their photo taken with some Star Wars characters.
“Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus” will be available for purchase at the event. Buying books during Writers Present is a great way for the public to support the author programs and keep them free.
